Not quite Weird until I point out the history

Arnold Friberg just recently passed away. He drew most of the pictures found in the hand out Book of Mormon. Many of his pictures are what people imagine when they think of the people in the BoM.

I decided to show some of the artists that remind me of Friberg's work.

Roerich first comes to mind.

In fact most Germanic/Viking types work here.

Albrecht Altdorfer
and his group pictures.

Or Casper David Frederich with his natural moments.

The honest truth is that his art style was a common thing in Germany in the early 20th century. Even Hitler drew like that. Yet the truth is, Nephi, Lehi, Laman, Lemuel, Samuel, and Abinidi probably looked nothing like the pictures that portrayed them.
